Please extend a warm welcome to one of RAGOM's newest members, Herky! Herky is neutered, up-to-date on his shots, and weighs about 75-80 pounds. He is full of energy, and is SUCH a happy dog! Herky was surrendered to RAGOM by a shelter in central Iowa (where he came in as a stray) because they were over-crowded. He gets along with all dogs he's met, but he does have so much energy, that older dogs may be put off by his exuberance :-). He does have a very high prey drive, so cats are a no for him.   

Herky is said to be about 9 years old, but he has a very large amount of energy for a 9-year-old dog! He looks to be either a purebred, or mixed with, Irish Setter. He's a very, very sweet boy. He has recently discovered toys, and it is the cutest thing. He throws them up in the air and tries to initiate play with our resident dog. He loves to run around the fenced in yard. He will need a good deal of exercise every day, so a fence would be preferred, but not required. I do think he'd make a GREAT running partner with a little training. He does need a Gentle Leader when he walks, which he's getting used to.

  If you're looking for an energetic, fun-loving, and oh-so-sweet dog for your home, Herky is your guy! Talk to your placement advisor if you'd like to know more about Herky!
